Adventures in Serging

Hope you’re all having a lovely 4th of July. I must say I’m a little jealous of everyone I’m seeing on the blogosphere hanging out in pools. I may not be the best swimmer, but I loves me a pool! read more »

Monday Inspiration: We the People

All photos from: We the People

I don’t know about you, but here in San Francisco it’s getting a little warmer, pale girls like me are getting a little more color, and lots and lots of festivals are coming up which can only mean one thing – it’s time to revamp my dreary winter wardrobe. read more »

You Better Work – Babushka Designs Photoshoot

As many of you know by now (since I won’t stop talking about it) Babushka Designs will be a part of Unique LA next month! Click here for more details, and to RSVP.

Aside from crocheting and knitting like crazy to get ready for the show, I decided to re-shoot everything to make the shop and my marketing materials a little nicer (the camera on my iPhone is no longer cutting it!). My friend Evan shot the photos at my apartment this past weekend – it was SO MUCH FUN! (Click here to check out his work) I should have them sometime within the next week, but for now here are some behind the scenes shots I took.


As you can see above (photo by Jane), I was still in my workout clothes (I went to pilates that morning). Important lesson learned – always look photo-ready, but that’s ok. I’m keeping it real. I love how Marissa (the model) is looking at me like I’m crazy in this photo. And that’s Evan doing his thang on the right.

Every good photo shoot needs fun music to pump everyone up. About 10 minutes after taking this photo, I came to realize that the music I thought was fun, wasn’t what everyone else considered fun. We soon switched over to Party Favorites, and later, hip hop.

Last but not least, everyone knows models love popcorn chicken, fried cheese, and mini pizzas. So of course we had that handy.

That’s a wrap! Will be sharing the photos as soon as I get them. Yay!

From Shoes in Birdcages to In-Store Alterations: Artillery Apparel Gallery

This weekend, after failing in my attempts to make an Ikea run (long story), a friend and I decided to enjoy the pretty weather and take a stroll through the Mission. We happened upon Artillery Apparel Gallery, which neither of us had seen on Mission Street before, so we decided to check it out.

It’s a boutique full of handmade goods from local artists & designers. The bowties were super cute and the jewelry selection was a feast for the eyes (in a low-key boutique sort of way – even though the prices were still quite steep). The fella working at the shop was really sweet, and his personality alone made being in the shop an enjoyable experience. The innovative displays and sculptures were a really unique sight as well.

If you’re ever in the neighborhood, pay them a visit! Artillery Apparel Gallery, 2751 Mission St. (between 23rd & 24th), San Francisco, CA 94110

Hey, all. So I’ve decided that Tweeting my favorite links is just not enough. I want to document them here in my blog as well. Why? Why not! read more »
